You know, all this time I thought the giant Gundam in Odaiba was just that…a statue. Did you know it was battle-ready??? NO JOKE!! I was standing there taking pictures when this music came on and the Gundam machine started moving its head. The Gundam’s eyes lit up, and some steamed from the robot. I peed myself a little bit, because it was unexpected. Granted, the Gundam didn’t do a whole lot, but seeing something that size even moving it’s head around can really catch your attention. Did I want a display of the RX-78’s (Gundam model number) missile & cannon arsenal? Of course! But I guess, running the battle demonstration program and shooting missiles and cannons into a crowd of civilians would be a bit of liablilty issue.
Here’s a brief look at the Gundam demo that I saw:
